beleza sob a luz da manhã... // beauty under the morning light...

É linda, não é?! É uma magnólia e está agora mesmo a começar a abrir com o calorzinho da manhã! Adoro esta tonalidade! Perfeita para um jardim ou lugar romântico!!! Bem ... na realidade perfeita para qualquer lugar!
Esta semana tem sido difícil sem o meu marido por cá! Não tenho tido muito tempo para grande coisa!, mas ideias para projectos não faltam!
As últimas fotos são de uns potinhos para velas que fiz usando  frasquinhos de comida para bebé. Não tinha de todo pensado usá-los para este fim porque detesto aquele rebordo onde enrosca a tampa!!; fica mesmo feio, mas tentei qualquer coisa e adoro o resultado! Que tal?! Algumas ideias como usá-los?!
Bom dia e aproveitem o sol!

It is beautiful!! isn't it?!?! It is now starting to open with the morning warmth and sun! I just love this shade of soft pink mixed with white! Perfect for a romantic garden like mine. In fact, it would look gorgeous no matter the place!!!
This week has been a bit difficult with my husband in Austria! I'm all alone with the kids and between the house stuff, ny son's school and violin and ballet and ... (uff i'm tired already!!) i have no time at all !!! so i haven't visit you that much, but i promisse i will!
On the last photos: some candle holders, i did last week, and that are made of baby food jars (Marita - was talking about this the other day!)! I don't usually use them because i don't like that top part!! but, this time decided to try it out and came up with this! How about it?!? do you have any ideas on how to use them?!? I still have a lot! Some of them i'm going to use for spices (i'll show you photos when they are done!); but you all have lots of gorgeous ideas, and i've run out!!
Happy day!

Hi, Rosa. All is beautiful in the candlelight. I love the magnolia. It was my fathers' favorite flower. I like the jars with the little bit of glitter (?). My heart is sad that your husband is not with you. Soon, I hope he is home. Peace. Brianne

Rummet för välbefinnande disse...

Good morning :)
These photos looks exotic to me. Simply love them, and the colors are just great. Here we´re having snow, but actually it´s not very cold today and I´m very happy for that. So I think - today will be a fantastic day :)

What do think about taking some glue and then tie a string round the glass-jar. Then you can put a lace above it. The mix between the airy, light lace and the rough ribbon behind it can be nice, I think. But be sure that the fire can´t reach it.
Wish you a nice saturday.

Cucchiaio pieno disse...

Realmente a magnólia é linda! As fotos sao maravilhosas.
Que pena que você esta' longe do teu marido. A Áustria fica aqui pertinho, é um lugar lindo e onde tem a famosa sacher torte (que amo)!
Um abraço
